Energy transfer within Vehicle Restraint Systems -Maker Challenge: Creative Crash Test Cars
In this unit, students will learn about how energy is transferred during a car accident. The students will then have to design a vehicle restraint system to protect a “passenger” in a collision. Students will need to research existing restraint systems. Students will need to design a restraint system of their own in small groups. Students will need to test their prototypes using a ramp and a wall to collide with.
